It gives us great pleasure to announce that Everglory has made an investment in the future of our customers’ supply chains by bringing Customs brokerage in-house through the acquisition of Customs broker, LITESHIP International, LLC.

Meet Everglory Customs Brokers, LLC.

Founded by Jay Breda in 2006, LITESHIP is actually in the same building we are on McClellan Highway in Boston. Their areas of expertise align with many of our clients industries.

Under the Everglory banner, we now have three licensed Customs brokers who can file entries anywhere in the United States on behalf of our importers. They bring us trained and certified personnel specializing in State Department ITAR license regulations including filing license applications and record keeping. We have additional IATA dangerous goods certified personnel and staff experienced in the operations and regulatory needs of aerospace shippers.

The acquisition of LITESHIP has also set in motion plans to create a seamless, full-service customer experience integrating forwarding and Customs brokerage. It also provides a roadmap for future software updates that will unify both processes in a single system for our customers.

From Joe Phan, Managing Director, Everglory Logistics:

“This is a tremendous opportunity for Everglory and our customers. Jay built a tremendous business and we were very fortunate to have him as Everglory’s Customs broker. Now, officially a part of Everglory, we have exciting new opportunities to help our importer clients with Customs clearance anywhere in the United States and LITESHIP’s customers can benefit from Everglory’s network of resources throughout Asia.”

From Jay Breda, Founder of LITESHIP:

“Out of frustration for the way large Customs brokers were treating their clients, I founded LITESHIP in 2006. We wanted to build a company that was small enough to be able to provide personal service and yet large enough to be able to handle most everything that came our way as a Customs broker. Becoming part of the Everglory family gives us a chance to align with a company who shares our beliefs and allows us to deliver our personal brand of service to their customers and ours.”
